Review

The Ford Fiesta is superb to drive, smart inside and well equipped, plus it offers a broad range of trim levels – from the affordable Trend to the SUV-inspired Active – to cater for many tastes and budgets. It’s one of the very best small cars you can buy, but the rival Volkswagen Polo just has the edge for ride comfort, standard safety and rear seat space.

Trim: ST-Line X Edition

Engine: 1.0 EcoBoost

This engine is a cracker. Responsive around town and impressively hushed at motorway speed, it’s a brilliantly flexible unit. Comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. You can opt for an automatic gearbox, but if you do CO2 emissions jump up compared with the manual, while fuel economy is also noticeably worse.
